"Convenient, I don't like 20 minute bus trips from remote locations. Longstay 1 runs a good bus link but it can be walked easily if you are cabin baggage only. Delay getting in and out which is unusual but the car park was very busy, even at 5.30am. Will use again"September 15, 2010
"this car park is easy to get to.there are plenty of spaces , the area being used is always indicated when you enter.if you pre book getting in and out is a doddle.there are frequent buses to the terminal which is within walking distance if you choose to do so."September 1, 2010
"Okay. Easy to find and get to. Plenty of space. Short walk to airport. Exit to M42 could be A LOT better signposted! Not so sure about the cobble stoned bit. The stones often get onto the routeways between the parking stretches and can easily be "fired" quite accidentally onto the parked cars from passing vehicles wheels. Not nice if it busts or cracks your windscreen, or dints and damages your car. Other than that an infinitely better experience than both Gatwick and Heathrow!!! And we live way down in the South."August 31, 2010
"The Long Stay 1 Car Park had easy-access, prompt pick-up procedures and it served its purpose very well. We would use this service again."August 21, 2010
"It was extremely busy and difficult to get a parking space. But once we got one the rest went well with good regular pick up/drop off's"August 18, 2010
"site was easy to use and rates were competitive. got "upgraded" from long stay park to short stay on arrival at airport so even closer to terminal! an all round positive experience"August 17, 2010
"The car park is very large so to ensure you find your car on return write down the location and bus stop!
It was so easy to get out, just quote your code.
A pleasurable and stress free experience"
"Very convenient & reasonably priced. We had no problems getting to and from the terminals and will definately use this car park again."August 13, 2010
"My wife and I have used Birmingham Airport Long Stay 1 car park on 2 occasions in the last 2 months and have found it very satisfactory and convenient so much so that we have booked to use it again next month. It is easy to access from the A45 and has the benefit of a frequent shuttle bus service to the terminals."August 12, 2010
"This is the first time we have parked at Birmingham airport.
We thought parking was excellent. So easy to get to travel to and so easy. Just park catch the courtesy bus and off we went. On return catch bus back to car quote ref no at barrier and we were away. So much easier than when we have used Gatwick in the past."
"very good service,easy to use, convenient and would use it again."August 8, 2010
"On arrival we were met by a representative of NCP and told we could have an upgrade to the multi-storey car park by the terminal( the Long stay 1 car park was obviously very full). At the end of our holiday we had no trouble exiting despite thinking there could be some delay as this was not part of our original booking. However, we had no problems."August 6, 2010
"Easy, fast and efficient parking and service"August 1, 2010
"Easy to get to and only 5 minutes walk to the terminal."July 27, 2010
"parking was quick and easy, collecting was just as painless excellent service"July 27, 2010
"Excellent service - got stranded in Turkey for an extra 5 days through the Volcanic ash and when we came back, we didn't get charged extra as we'd pre-paid. This, amongst other things that happened to us, has made me proud to be British once again! No-one has ripped us off! Yippee!!!"April 23, 2010
"It is normally outrageously expensive to park at Birmingham aqnd the off airport parking sites are a real time consuming pain. Airport parking shop bridges that gap so you get on airport parking at a much reduced price. A little bit more than the off airport sites but worth it for reduced hassell. It is after all a holiday! The system works perfectly and you don't have to stop for anything."April 13, 2010
"Easy to find, well located for aiport, no waiting for buses"April 5, 2010
"Easy access to terminal building.
Difficult to get out. Was asked for £20 extra to pay. Had to wait and speak over intercom before I could get out."
"Seamless experience"March 29, 2010
"Great parking on airport site, easy to find, easy to get to airport and returning to car, have used this may times and will continue to use for convenience."March 4, 2010
"The system worked - ad saved money - no need to queue at a machine just call with the reference number at the barrier. Must remember to have the reference number handy though!"February 26, 2010
"excellent, already rebooked. vjc."January 29, 2010
"Close to the Airport, could have pick up points more clearly signed as well as exit out of car park, bus pick up time within the advertised time."January 20, 2010
"cold and wet Janurary night,half shelter lights not working,no phone,intercom or toilets in unmanned waiting room,only intercom working on exit barrier haif a mile away.On returning to a flat battery the staff did not give a toss, after finally getting hold of someone,and the ticket machine not reckognising our booking,the experience was fantastic-not.Would I use you again,probably not,Thanks"January 16, 2010
"Ideally situated within walking distance to the terminal. My plane was delayed for over 5 hours & was pleased to find out I wasn't expected to pay for the extra time!! Would definately use this car park for all future trips."January 4, 2010
"whilst I have no complaints about the car park itself, which I have used on many previous occaisions, the same cannot be said about the shuttle buses to and from the terminal.
Both on my inward journey and when returning, drivers ignored my requests to stop. Outward it was not too much of an inconvenience as I had the waiting room to stand in, but coming back with my Mother who is in her 70's, the driver closed the bus doors on me as I entered the bus stop, and drove off. It was cold and wet and we had at that stage been travelling for over 10 hours, and despite the apparent amusement of the driver concerned, we did not find it in the least funny.
I will be seriously considering using an off site car park in future, as the only advantage to using the on site parking is the supposedly easy and regular access to the car park."
"Not very satisfied with pick up from arrivals. Ticket stated car park 2, bus driver said there was no service to car park 2, but didn't explain that the ticket was ok to use for car park 1, which was apparently where the car was after all."November 30, 2009
"Found the carpark easily when approaching the airport- Didnt have to wait around for a bus, especially at 4 oclock in the morning, unfortunately failed to note which row we parked the car even tho each row was clearly marked which was a bit of a nightmare on our return."October 26, 2009
"I booked a 6-day stay at Birmingham Airport's Long Stay 1 car-park but, upon arrival, was re-directed to Short and Medium Stay 1 instead by a helpful steward who gave clear directions. This car-park turned out to be a short walk from the terminal, avoiding the need to catch a connecting bus service, and there was no additional fee required. Parking was simple as the bays were not too narrow, even though this was an indoor multi-story car-park and I was driving an estate car.
At no point was I concerned for the safety of my vehicle as the environment felt fairly secure. No car-park is completely invulnerable, but hey, who wants an aging Mondeo!
I give the Short and Medium Stay car-park 1 a score of 5/5 given the value for money, which may have been cheaper than normal given the last minute re-direction, and its close proximity to the airport terminal. As I did not use the car-park I originally booked I cannot comment on Long Stay 1.
